Episode 70 – “Blurred Lines”


Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 70 titled Blurred Lines!

We are a your Blizzard Entertainment discussion podcast. Each week we discuss anything that falls in between or outside those two glaciers. From talking about the games you love, the worlds you live in, AND maybe even a few you haven’t even heard of yet. Join Kilroy and Epicinsanity each week as we sit down and discuss the topics no one else is talking about as we bring you new points of view in a not so standard podcast format.

The show was recorded on Sunday, July 19th, 2015. And was released on Tuesday the 21st 2015.

On Today’s episode we quickly go over our weeks in video games, then we jump right into covering all of this week’s news inside the Blizzard Entertainment Universe covering Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Diablo, Starcraft, Overwatch and World of Warcraft news. But before we start this week’s discussion we present this week’s Top 10 List of things that content that never made the collector’s edition cut. Then we drop a basic campfire and start our World of Warcraft discussion! This week we discuss the absence of the new upcoming PVP Mercenary Feature. But then before you know it, we are onto the StarCade! This week we cover a Blizzard Arcade game called Legends of Azeroth! Then we move onto our Blizzard Discussion topics where we discuss the what’s next for Hearthstone!
